Oppo R1 officially released, costs $410, features a rear camera with F/2.0 aperture

China’s Oppo officially launched the R1, a new Android smartphone that was first seen at the start of this month.

While it’s not a high-end device, the Oppo R1 promises to deliver excellent nighttime photos. Its rear camera is an 8MP one with wide aperture - F/2.0, to be exact. For comparison, the camera of Nokia’s Lumia 1020 has an F/2.2 aperture (as you may know, the lower the F-number is, the more light enters the sensor). But is the Oppo R1 really great for taking photos in low-light settings? Well, we can’t say for sure until we actually test it (or at least see some sample photos published by independent websites). Anyway, the camera seems promising enough.

The R1 runs Oppo’s own Color OS (based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean), and further features: a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels (294 PPI), 5MP front-facing camera, quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory (there’s no MicroSD card slot, unfortunately). Weighing 140 grams and measuring 142.7 x 70.4 x 7.1 mm (that’s thin!), the new handset includes a 2,410 mAh battery.

The R1 can be ordered as of now, unlocked, from Oppo’s Chinese webshop, costing about $410 (2498 CNY). It remains to be seen if Oppo will want to release the smartphone outside China. The company has recently announced a CyanogenMod edition of its 6-inch N1 handset for the US, so it seems to be ready to take on foreign markets.

It's like mix of Z and iP5S. I think it looks cool.

Looks like the design was inspired by the gold iPhone 5S, but slimmer.

Well said, definitely not a copy, but really sweet looking handset inspired by iPhone.

The article says it has a memory of 2gb Ram, but I watched several hands-on clips on youtube and I saw it had only 1gb of Ram. So in fact it's 2gb or 1gb?
Much better if it has 2gb of Ram
